Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ enhances the functionalities of its six main features, further utilizing a high-resolution camera and millimeter-wave radar to help keep occupants safe. The six Toyota Safety Sense features include:

  • Pre-Collision System
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Lane Tracing Assist
  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control
  • Road Sign Assist

Each of these features plays a part in paying attention to the road and the vehicles around you even when you forget to.

The Pre-Collision System can detect a vehicle or a pedestrian in either daytime or low-light situations, as well as daytime detection of a bicyclist. When a potential hazard is detected, it may provide audible and visual alerts and automatic braking in certain conditions.

The Lane Departure Alert system works by detecting visible white and yellow lane markings or the road’s edge at speeds above 32 mph. It is designed to provide an audio and visual alert as well as steering wheel vibrations on select vehicles if an inadvertent lane departure is detected. If the driver does not take corrective action, the Steering Assist function is designed to provide gentle corrective steering.

The Automatic High Beam feature is designed to help the driver see more clearly at night, while also reducing glare for other drivers.

The Lane Trace Assist system is designed to help keep the vehicle centered in its visibly marked lane and preemptively avoid unintended lane departures while cruising. It monitors lane markings, the path of the vehicle ahead, and is designed to automatically make constant steering inputs to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane.

The Dynamic Radar Cruise Control can detect slower vehicles in front of you and automatically adjust the vehicle’s speed to help maintain a preset distance behind the vehicle ahead.

The Road Sign Assist system can read certain traffic signs and display them on the vehicle’s Multi-Information Display. This helps provide the driver with additional awareness of posted road signs. The system can recognize speed limit, stop, yield, and do not enter signs.
